We have just come back from Vietnam and one of the highlights was the cruise with Orchid. They were brilliant from our first booking, to organising transfers, to attention on board. The room was amazing, very luxurious and arranged so you don’t miss any of the scenery as the whole room has floor to ceiling picture windows, even in the bathroom. The food was amazing, plenty of choice and all beautifully cooked and presented. The staff were helpful, friendly and cheerful and we visited lovely places. This cruise company do not start at the main port in Halong Bay which means you don’t have to battle the crowds. There were only about 6/8 other boats in sight at times – we met a couple who sailed with another company from Halong Bay and reckon 200 boats left together! The scenery was breathtaking. We kayaked and swam and enjoyed squid fishing. The bar stayed open until the last person left. Drinks are a little on the pricey side though so you need to make use of Happy Hour.

I went on this cruise with 3 other girlfriends in Nov 2017 and had such an amazing time I booked it again with my Mom and Boyfriend in April 2019. The views, the activities, the food, and the customer service is top notch and extremely luxury. They make everything a breeze so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the views. The cabins are large, clean, classy, and have beautiful views as you pass by the limestone islands. There is a good balance of activities (caves, kayaking, swimming, cooking class, biking to a village, etc.), and relaxing on the roof top, bath tub, balcony, or at the happy hours. The best part is the staff, they are friendly, energetic, and personal. I made friends with Sunny and Anthony and heard more about their life in Vietnam, they are the best at what they do! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone to book this cruise.
